Authorities are accusing a Cincinnati woman of using a vacuum cleaner to attack her 93-year-old neighbor.

Police say 57-year-old Dora Nance has been charged with aggravated robbery and felonious assault for entering Florence Holmes' apartment, hitting her with a vacuum and stealing money from the woman's purse. Police say Holmes suffered cuts and broken bones in the attack early Monday.

Police say Nance has confessed to the crime. She could face 20 years in prison.

Records show Nance was in jail. She could not be reached for comment.

There is no telephone listing for her in the Cincinnati area, and calls went unanswered at the Hamilton County Corrections Department.
